Sunday Sketching


Today I sketched John H. He sat very still and was at a good angle to draw. Something is wrong with his nose/mustache area, but otherwise I think it looks quite a bit like him. I actually think his nose is a bit bigger.

When I get home and notice what isn't right it makes me want to go back and erase and fix, but then I don't have my subject in front of me so I don't know what to do to fix it. I need to be more observant earlier.

I think this is a good portrait Patty. Of course I don't know the fellow. It is good anyway.

I think this is your best yet. It looks exactly like him. I will check out his nose when I next see him!

Well it looks good to me and I bet I could pick him out in a line up. :))I sent you an email about Annie and her Surgery. I had a question about the recovery.

Great Sketch--I bet I could match the person to the sketch if I saw him :-)

It looks like a very good portrait and I 'm sure I could find him in your church.

To anon - that's funny! Believe it or not, he did stay awake the whole time. Must be PM's style of preaching.
